Howdy All, Does anyone know how to turn the timing belt warning light off on a 100s live axle 1HZ. Belt was changed at 107k while having some other work done. Now have reached 150k and light has come on, no idea how to turn off.
Thanks Krakka

Hi Krakka,
I suspect you would need a workshop manual or visit/ring a dealer's service division. Often it is something like switching the ignition from acc to run 3 times in x secs whilst pressing and holding in another seemingly unrelated button/control......cheers,

Just as a guess, make sure vehicle is turned off. Push in and hold speedo trip reset button and whist holding in button crank/start vehicle. Can't guarantee this for a 1HZ but this is pretty much a standard reset procedure for most vehicles.
If it doesn't work it certainly won't harm anything.

This is pasted from a previous reply to another thread by Phil

Lcool site has it, but its offline at the moment, but here is the blurb:

a) With ignition turned ON, using the trip switch (select/reset button)
change the display to ODO, and turn the ignition OFF

b) While pressing the trip switch, turn the ignition switch ON and hold it
for 5 seconds.

c) Release the trip switch, then press the switch again within 5 seconds.

d) The digital display should change to T-belt mode. The initial display "
15 " (0,000km) is displayed (ie. 150,000km).


While in the T-Belt mode, each press of the trip switch will change the
displayed value by 10,000km increments. Once " 20 " (200,000km) is reached
the display reverts back to " 1 " (10,000km) again. Remember, this setting
is the number of kilometres to be travelled before the light comes on next,
and once reset this counter will start from zero.

I believe the timing belt interval for all the 100 series engine variants is
150,000km, but this should be checked against each different markets
servicing recommendation. This being the case, you shouldn't need to change
from the default setting of " 15 ".

Obviously for the US, the ODO is in miles, and I guess the T-Belt warning
would be set in 10,000 mile intervals.


a) After setting the replacement setting value, hold the trip switch ON for
more than 5 seconds then release the switch.

b) Check that the display has now changed back to ODO and that the warning
light has gone off when the engine is started.

NOTE: If the T-Belt mode is completed, even though the belt replacement has
not been performed, the T-Belt warning IS reset.

Cheers Kev
